Obama reminds Trump: 'This is a really serious job. This is not a reality show'
According to the UK Daily Mail, 'President Barack Obama said today that as a 'general rule' he doesn't 'pay attention' to Donald Trump's tweets, so he hasn't seen the photo of the real estate mogul celebrating Cinco de Mayo by eating a taco bowl.
At the same time, Obama urged the American public to pay close attention to what the presumptive Republican nominee is saying as they consider who to vote for in November's election and not be distracted by the 'spectacle' and the 'circus' aspect of it all.
'I just want to emphasis the degree to which we are in serious times, and this is a really serious job,' he said. 'This is not entertainment.
This is not a reality show.'
The two-term president said, 'This is a contest for the presidency of the United States, and what that means is that every candidate, every nominee needs to be held to exacting standards and genuine scrutiny.'
